Subject:Re: short bulletin on trends in sexual and physical abuse

Thank you for that concise summary! My research for a Master in Public Policy degree over the past two years focused on reducing the incidence of child abuse and neglect; I concluded that improving parenting competency was the best way to achieve that goal. Do you have any evidence to suggest that the reductions in abuse you document are due to any particular interventions or changes? --Carl --- On Fri, 11/9/12, Finkelhor, David wrote: Because of continuing debates about the reality of declines in maltreatment, I put together this short bulletin summarizing the data from various sources. Hope you find it helpful David
